Allison

Founder, ADHD Coach, Nutrition Counselor, Somatic Practitioner, Certified Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) Facilitator - (Polyvagal Theory Based Program)

When it comes to how I practice, I know that my unique gift is the ability to profoundly connect with others and create an environment where anyone can feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable. My undivided attention, genuine care, and authenticity create a safe/brave space for my clients to just BE during their journey.

ADHD and developmental disorders are near and dear to my heart. I chose to receive education in the scope of Occupational Therapy because I saw a “gap” in healthcare. Adults with ADHD are lacking in support - From childhood to adulthood, they are so often misunderstood. And I share that same story.

I have found that each person with ADHD is different, therefore we can not expect support to look the same for everyone. The key for me was to work with my ADHD brain, not against it. Now let's do the same for you.
